Which prompt are you talking about? I'm not sure which one is really used in
your case. Depending on your environment, sometime asking for credentials is
done directly by the system, sometimes it's Ivy which display a dialog. If
it's Ivy which asks for your creedentials, have a look at the
CredentialsUtil class, and also the SshCache class. I can't tell really more
except that it has been tested in real life, but there is no unit test, so
we may have a regression... I can't test myself since I haven't a good
environment for the moment.


I'm trying to figure this out from the current code base, but I haven't
